Nick Knight assignment


Today I had the pleasure to work again with the amazing Melissa Robinson from Forever Seen, who is currently studying a Mastered course with Nick Knight. This course teaches the ins and outs of the fashion photography industry from the top leaders in fashion.

The brief for the shoot was strong seductive but intriguing expressions. Vibrant full of life energy/party vibe, strong posing and movement in each frame either clothing or hair. Mariam Seddiq has the perfect designs, aesthetic and culture to fit the brief.

The amazing Chantal Haberland from Synergy Hair was responsible for the two amazing hair styles created for the shoot on our beautiful model Chloe Watts.



The shoot was part of an assignment for the Mastered Class. As Nick Knight is the world’s most inventive fashion photographer, he encourages photographers to think creatively and create campaigns that would inspire viewers reflect between the lines.

Based on the brief the makeup look Mel was after was a 60s inspired embracing the seductive essence and radical advance of sexual expression of woman. For this amazing shoot, I have used MAC Face and Body, with MAC Pro Concealer to contour and highlight followed by MAC gel liner to create that cat eye effect.
